Flatford, Suffolk

General Details

Flatford lies in the heart of the beautiful Dedham Vale. This charming hamlet was the inspiration for some of John Constable's most famous pictures, for example, the Hay Wain or Boatbuilding near Flatford Mill among many others. Wandering beside the River Stour or looking at Flatford Mill and Willy Lott's House you can feel as if you are actually walking through one of his paintings.

Exhibitions by contemporary artists are held in the Boat House Gallery.

We have plenty of parking and you can also come on foot by following the River Stour from Dedham or Manningtree.

This is great walking countryside so you can take the family out, walk the dog or simply step back in time and absorb the places Constable knew and loved.
